And this one did make an appearance in the little video of Dave's birthday, but it was never officially posted.
This is one of my favorites. I got a call from someone who asked for a sheet cake with blue icing. They were having a pool party and she thought just blue icing would be fine. I laughed and asked her if she would like the cake to have a "Swimming Party" theme. I don't think she knew who she was talking to, lol. Anyway, I found this idea online and it was so much fun! I used a sea sponge to texture the concrete around the pool, each of the tiles around the edge of the pool are made of icing using a flat tip. I made little swimming suits on the Teddy Grahams out of icing, and used Gummy Life-Savers for the floaties. The towels, beach ball and rafts are fondant. The only thing that wasn't edible on this cake was the umbrella. For some reason, that little trick where you can click on the picture and it enlarges for you isn't working anymore...don't know why not. It's a shame really, because the details are really cool on this cake. I'm also going to load these on my Flicker in the sidebar, so if you really want to see it, you might try going to the Flicker album and see if you can make it bigger over there. Sorry about that.
So that's it for now. It's time to fix breakfast and then hit the books with the kids. Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget to check out the giveaways in my sidebar!
